Professor Powers of Cornell does not
favor the killing of the weaker of man

generations, though the newspapers
quoted him last year to that effect He
has many radical Ideas, however, on
sociological subjects, and one of these
la that tho man of the present day
must learn to "flt In," to lose his Indi
vidual Identity and become a cog or a
lever hi some huge industrial machine.
With those persons who lack perspec
tive he has Uttle patience.
Last spring In one of his lectures at
CorneU on "The Modern Regime" Pro
fessor Powers told of such a person,
whom he met In a western town. He
got off at the station In one end of the
town and learned that the station of
the other railroad on which he was to
continue his Journey that morning
was, for no apparent reason, at exactly
the other end of the village, two miles
distant He took the bus and whUe

bus driver, who was also the bus own

did not think that some day tho two
railroads would consolldete or at least
use the same station. The idea had
evidently never occurred to the village
man, for, folding up bh hands, he as
sured his questioner, with decided em
phasis, that that would never ,come

Hiss Astor's Visit.
Miss Pauline Astor, daughter of Wil

ing In Mew York. This Is her first visit
to her native country since her school
days, and she Is now just twenty. On
her voyage across the Atlantic she was
accompanied by her governess and a
maid. She wasn't met at the steamer
by her grandaunt Mrs. William Astor,
or by any one representing that lady,
which society gossips say was due to the
fact that the old quarrel between Miss
Pauline's mother and. Mrs. William
has never been patched up. The dis
pute was over the question of which
, - snss Acxn asto& .
woman was entitled to be addressed
aa "Mrs. Astor." It waa settled by the
postal authorities deciding" In favor of
Mrs. William Astor, and she lias borne
that honor to this day.
Miss raulioe Astor Is slender, grace
